WELLINGTON new cheap nike air max 90 , Sept. 12 (Xinhua) -- There were 39 million guest nights spent in short-term commercial accommodation in New Zealand in the year ended July 2017, an increase of 1.3 million on the previous July year, the country's statistic department Stats NZ said on Tuesday.

The month of July 2017 was relatively quiet, with a modest increase in guest nights of 1.4 percent compared with July 2016, Stats NZ said, adding that both international and domestic guest nights had small increases.

The July month caught the tail end of the Lions rugby tour with matches in Wellington and Auckland following eight matches in June cheap nike air max 90 sale , it said.

"The effect of the Lions tour on international guest nights hasn't been as visible in July as it was in June," accommodation statistics manager Melissa McKenzie said in a statement.

Motels benefited the most from the increase in international guest nights. International visitors spent 13.9 percent more nights in motels in July 2017 than in July 2016, McKenzie said, adding that motel international guest nights have now been increasing for two years when compared with the same month of the previous year.

Of all the regions, guest nights increased the most in the Bay of Plenty, up 5.4 percent in July 2017 compared with July 2016 cheap nike air max 90 shoes , according to Stats NZ.

Auckland was notably flat, but this comes off July 2016 that was 8.4 percent higher than July 2015, it said, adding that increases occurred in 9 of the 12 regional areas.

For the past three years, John Jia has been getting dozens of calls every day asking about one of the most talked about products heading from the US to China - Asian carp.

Jia is one of the business liaisons for the Illinois-based Big River Fish Corp. The US company started exporting frozen Asian carp and fish products to China in 2005 and is expected to ride on a wave of growth. A processing factory is also being built in the Chinese port city of Tianjin to cater to its expansion.

"This is not only good news for Chinese consumers who will get wild fish to eat; it's also good news for the US because the Chinese are 'eating' the problems that are threatening US rivers cheap nike air max lunar 90 WR ," Jia said, smiling.

In the US, Asian carp - an aggressive invasive species - are making their way up the Mississippi River and its tributaries, threatening rivers and lakes. The fish is able to eat nearly 40 percent of its body weight every day and reproduce very quickly. Its spread can be disastrous for major waterways and water bodies like the Mississippi River and Great Lakes.

Asian carp were first introduced into the US from China in the 1970s to help enhance water quality in ponds.

The fish is considered a delicacy in China, and environmentalists have taken efforts to protect the species in the Yangtze River for years due to industrial pollution and the deteriorating water environment.

Getting more Chinese to eat the fish seems to be a win-win solution for the two countries and businessmen like Jia are making full use of the opportunity.

A sales manager of Shanghai-based Santa Food who refused to be named told China Daily in a telephone interview that the fish from the US is totally wild, tasting much better than the Chinese variety cheap nike air max lunar 90 SP , which suffers from a poor water environment and excessive use of medication.

The company imported Asian carp products, including frozen fish and minced fillets, from Big River Fish starting late last year.

"Once clients try our products, they will come again," the manager said.

Even as Chinese businessmen rake in the profits from selling the Asian carp, a group of US scientists arrived in Shanghai cheap nike air max lunar 90 C3.0 , Wuhan and Chongqing in early September to search for solutions to prevent the spread of the fish in their country.

Yang Bo, a freshwater expert from The Nature Conservancy environmental organization, accompanied the group. Yang said one purpose of their visit is also to explore China's market for Asian carp.

They went to a seafood market in Shanghai and an aquatic product processing plant in Wuhan, and even tasted Chinese dishes made of Asian carp, she said.

"Chinese love eating the fish, and the US has too many of them. It makes sense to explore a business plan to help both sides get what they want cheap nike air max lunar 90 JCRD ," Yang said.

Entrepreneurs in China and US are increasingly aware of the economic opportunity. Big River Fish signed a contract in 2010 to export 13.6 million kilograms of Asian carp to the Beijing Zhuochen Livestock Husbandry company every year, according to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

The business has a lot more room for expansion, Jia said.

Business obstacles

Still, Yang said there are many barriers to making the business sustainable and large scale.

These include the high cost of transportation, tariffs and the Asian Carp Prevention and Control Act, a US law that makes transporting live fish across US state boundaries illegal.

Businesses bank on Chinese palates to help rid US of invasive Asian carp cheap nike air max lunar 90 , as Wang Qian reports.
